Topic: Ruby 2/Rite and Bytecode

I was reading an article and it mentioned something about a possibility of Ruby implementing a bytecode virtual machine, similar to Java.  So I searched and came across Rite which is the release name of Ruby 2.0.  It says that Rite will be bytecode based.

This is from 2003, does anyone know anything more about this?  It sure would be nice to make Ruby a lot faster.

Hi!

As long as I know from Julik (his video about unicode) that ruby founder Yukihiro Matsumoto ("Matz") promisses Unicode stuff M17N in 2007. Don't know much other things.

I'm waiting this day when Unicode is build in.
